Re: Expression help

It is very straight forward:

1. Create a Straight Table

2. Add Year as dimension

3. Add Only(Country) as expression

4. Add Max(sales) as expression

DONE ...

Re: Expression help

Set this property, then pivot will display data

Chart Properties --> Presentation --> Check "Always fully expanded"

Re: Expression help

Why do you want to move it to a pivot table? Your initial questions seems very well suited for a straight table presentation.

Please attach an example of what your pivot table looks like, so we can understand how you have done the pivot table.

Re: Expression help

Hi Toni,

The sample that I have posted above has just 2 dimensions, but in actual scenario there are three, I was hoping that i can replicate the result for three dimensions once i get an idea here

If(Sum(sales)=Max( TOTAL<dim1,dim2> Aggr(Sum(sales),dim1,dim2,dim3)),Sum(sales))

I was trying to get one dimension horizontal and another vertical so wanted to switch over to Pivot.

Please find attached the sampe excel with the expected output.

Thanks in advance.
